Abstract: 本文從對法律文本的操作分析入手,將典型的法律句式分為法律主體、法律行為以及情況或條件等三大要素。由此推斷及論證程式化的法律句子由兩種基本成分構 成:包含法律主體和行為的主句,與確立條件、資格或性質的條件從句。本文重點論述法律條件句中最常用的6組共8個主要引導詞的作用,對 if;where;when;in case,in the event that;should;provided,providing等詞的用法和差異作了較系統的介紹和辨析,同時還對其適當的漢譯對應詞作了推介。
Operative analysis is instrumental to the training of legal writers and translators.A careful analysis of legal texts from an operative perspective often leads to the identification of three elements in them,i.e.,the legal subject,the legal action and the case or condition.These elements constitute the two syntactic parts of any formalized legal sentence:the main clause,which is constituted of the first two, and the conditional clause, which determines the qualifications and the circumstances of the case concerned and is hence made up of the last element. Calling attention to 6 sets of conjunctive words or phrases frequently used to introduce conditional clauses in legal texts, this study discusses the subtle differences in the ways theses words function, and recommends appropriate strategies for turning them into Chinese.
Keywords: Grammatical analysis
